I've never tried. I'll test it this aft. First thought, though, is no.

More to follow...

While the internal clock won’t go into audio rate, it can be clocked by ultrasonic frequencies from other oscillators. I use it every now and then as an eight (or fewer) stage waveform generator.

Hey, that's me! Woo-hoo! Just stumbled onto this thread. Big thanks to Rich of Lower West Side for this great X-mas gift. He does quality work. Module looks great, functions perfectly and is tons of fun.

Looking forward to seeing what he's cooking up as an aid to SimpleSeq. Must reserve a space...

Is it anything other than an 8-step sequencer?

Wow that was a fast catch JLR. I was working on the track that goes with that image when your post was made. The plan was to release the photo and track in about an hour. This ModularGrid photo was uploaded a bit earlier so my OCD could happily see my cabinet as it was really laid out.

It was Lower West Side Studio that created this beautiful monstrosity inspired by John's Jellybean SympleSEQ. For shits and giggles I offset each row's color by one.

There is a switch that will normalize all the clocks with the A sequencer's clock (internal or external). This version has all the RUN / HOLD and RESET features wired independently but can have them normalized with some caveats.

All in all a great little toy!

Track Info:

This track developed while testing a Hexinverter QuadSync sequencer built by Lower West Side Studio. This particular version was an expansion on the JLR inspired "Jellybean" SympleSEQ.

The sequence was built using all 4 sequencers clocked from an Oakley Dual LFO which was broken up by a CGS36 Pulse Divider / Boolean Logic Module.

The QuadSEQ gated Frequency Central System X and Hexinverter The Postman envelope generators.

Sounds generated came from Oakley and MFOS VCOs run through a Moogah SEM VCF and a Yusynth ARP 4072 filter.

The whole thing was plumbed through a series of Oakley Classic VCAs (the ones that go to 11) and a Yusynth Panning Mixer.

Because the whole exercise started as a lark I simply added bit from whichever synth I was near as I walked around listening to the sequence progress.

Does this quad configuration involve any 'marriage' of the four symple SEQs? Like Josaka indicated normalization of say the clock down the chain of all four would be great. I am certainly interested - but am curious about furthering the functionality (ie your sydecar) :nana:

I noticed this on modular grid! VERY nice!

It certainly has my 2 rows of symple SEQs beat. It's practically double.

Yup, just checked on a calculator and 4 is twice as many as 2.

I was right! :cheesy:

:woah: Woah, that's cool. What the hell is it?

@Faustgeist - There is a switch which toggles between syncing sequencers B, C and D to the clock of sequencer A. This works with either an internal or external clock on sequencer A.

Inserting another clock source into sequencer B, C or D while they are sync'd to sequencer A will override sequencer A's clock on that sequencer.

(did I say sequencer enough in this post?)

I decided to put Davies 1900 style knobs on my sympleSeq because of the tight spacing. (I'm going to do the same on both UEGs). While I was at it, I thought to also get a set of color coordinated knobs to match the jelly bean LEDs :hyper: :nana: but . . . it was just too Tutti Frutti for me! :roll: :lol:

Had to try so now I know! All black Davies look nice to me and due to their skinnier diameter are easier to use on a crowded panel then the originals.

Thanks Precarious and josaka 8-) :rastanana: The sympleSeq with black Davies knobs looks a bit like a Modcan A series module to me . . .

Whew, thank goodness you went for the black Davies 1900h knobs!
As a red-green color-blind person, those previous knobs screamed more "FU" than "MU" to me! :hihi:
